What To Know About Wrongful Death Claims
The purpose of filing a wrongful death claim is to recover compensation for the damages resulting from a relative or loved one’s death. For example, funeral costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. These claims can also help survivors find a sense of closure and peace of mind knowing that they have held the negligent party accountable.
Only a few people can pursue a wrongful death suit:
- The decedent’s spouse
- The decedent’s child
- The decedent’s other financial dependents
- The decedent’s parents
For a successful claim, the petitioner must prove that another party or person’s negligence resulted in the victim’s death. If you believe that you have grounds for a claim, our wrongful death and personal injury attorneys can sit down and review it with you.
Don’t Miss The Statute Of Limitations
There is a strict deadline for wrongful death claims in Hawai‘i. If you do not file your lawsuit within two years from the date of death, you lose the right to recover compensation. Our team will help you meet the important dates, but you must speak with us as soon as possible so we can work quickly.
